My average dropped by 17% in half a semester..?I've always been a straight A student, my average has never been below 80% and I've been on honor roll every year so far.But this semester I had all my academic courses in one semester as to past years where I've had say 2 academic courses and the rest were electives so there was a lot less pressure then and I couldn't change my schedule because it wouldn't fit in with the teachers' schedule.
In the beginning of the year I had an 86% average.. in half a semester I went from an 86 to a 69 all from slacking off. I did well on all of my exams but I slacked off a lot when it came to homework and assignments. My dad has been telling me that if I don't do well he will take away my Ipod, laptop, cell phone and well basically everything that keeps me entertained. I got my report card back today, it was supposed to come at the end of February but they changed the date. Should I just show him at the end of Feb. or do it now?
I have Math, AP English and my electives this semester which is a lot easier on me and I know i can probably get at least an 85 average but my dad is pretty strict when it comes to school. My sister who's in grade 7 gets 90s on basically everything and when I DO get an 86 average he constantly tells me that I have to do as well as my sister. If I were to get an 89 on a test and my sister a 95 on a quiz he'll start telling her how well she did and he'll tell me that I need to do better like my sister. So just imagine how he'll be when I get a 69 opposed to an 86.
Sorry if I keep going on with never-ending sentences that you probably don't care about, I'm just wondering if I should tell my dad now or at the end of February?
